The Northwest Iowa Regional Housing Trust Fund held a telephonic meeting Thursday.
The trust administers forgivable and low-interest loans to owner-occupants who qualify for financing. The program is administered through the Northwest Iowa Planning and Development Commission.
Members approved two new homeowners loans and heard a report from Justin Yarosevich, board member from Storm Lake, about the Iowa Finance Authority's celebration of helping the 10,000th homeowner Oct. 2 in Storm Lake.
Carol Keizer, trust administrator, said the fiscal 2013 grant application of $271,707 had been submitted and the trust would hopefully be notified of the grant award after Jan. 1.
The board will hold its next meeting Thursday, Jan. 25.
